Munster show five changes in personnel for the Rabo Pro12 tie with the Ospreys on Saturday with three of those changes accommodating the return of internationals Ronan O’Gara, Dave Kilcoyne and skipper Doug Howlett.

The other notable change is at scrum-half where Cathal Sheridan makes his first competitive start, while Rob Penney continues to rotate Garryowen clubmates Damien Varley and Mike Sherry, with Varley getting the nod for the No 2 jersey this time around.
